20 IPPs paid Rs89.2bn

ISLAMABAD: The government has paid Rs 89.2 billion to 20 Independent Power Producers (IPPs)
Updated 05 Jun, 2021

ISLAMABAD: The government has paid Rs 89.2 billion to 20 Independent Power Producers (IPPs).

This was announced by SAPM on Power and Petroleum Tabish Gauhar in a statement.

"I am pleased to inform that the first payment transaction, approved by the government of 40% to 20 IPPs amounting to Rs 89.2 billion has been completed in coordination with SBP [State Bank of Pakistan] and Power Division.

"This shows our commitment to resolve this longstanding issue on a permanent basis, he added.

According to the proposal approved by the ECC on May 6, 2021 and ratified by the Federal Cabinet in its meeting held on May 18, 2021, the government had pledged to pay 40 per cent of agreed amount as first installment to 35 IPPs. The sources said, minutes of the Federal Cabinet have been received by the Ministry of Energy (Power Division) and Ministry of Finance and paper work is being completed to pay due amounts of 35 IPPs. According to an official statement, Finance Ministry says that in compliance with the directives of the Prime Minister and under guidance of the Finance Minister, the government has completed the first payment transaction of 40% to 20 IPPs amounting to Rs 89.2 billion equally divided in cash 5 years’ Sukuk and 10 years’ PIBs. Finance Division has completed this transaction in coordination with relevant organisations/departments including State Bank of Pakistan and Power Division.

The government had assured the International Monetary Fund (IMF) that payments of Rs 180 billion will be made to 47 IPPs as first installment before May 31, 2021 but this was delayed due to ongoing investigation against 12 IPPs of the 2002 policy. It subsequently delayed the final approval of the Cabinet.

The government has to pay a cumulative amount of Rs 403 billion to 47 IPPs by December 2021. As per the agreement, the government had to pay agreed amounts to the IPPs by March 29, 2021.

The first installment of 40 per cent is duly divided into cash, PIBs and Sukuk and would be adjusted against power sector subsidy claims for the FY 2019-20 and 2020-21. Similarly, disbursement of the remaining 60 per cent will be taken care of in the next financial year.

Power Division has sought a Rs 90 billion supplementary grant to pay 40 percent agreed amount to IPPs established under the Generation Policy 1994 and the Generation Policy pre-1994. The ECC has constituted a committee on this proposal so that a permanent mechanism is devised to ensure payment to the IPPs as per the agreements.

Power Division has also proposed that payments to all IPPs under the Power Policy 2002, which have signed agreements pursuant to MoUs may be withheld till the conclusion of NAB investigation and suspend the process of signing ASA with IPPs under the 2002 Power Policy, and notification of their revised tariff as determined by Nepra till the conclusion of the NAB investigation.

The payment to 12 power projects which have not yet been paid are as follows: (i) Engro Power (gas); (ii) Foundation Power (gas); (iii) Orient Power (gas/RLNG/HSD; (iv) Saif Power (gas/RLNG/HSD; (v) Saphire Electric (gas/RLNG/HSD; (vi) Halmore Power (gas/RLNG/HSD; (vii) Hubco Narowal (RFO); (viii) Atlas Power (RFO); (ix) AGL Power (RFO); (x) Nishat Power (RFO); (xi) Nishat Chunian (RFO); and (xii) Liberty Tech (RFO).

The sources said IPPs established under the 2002 Policy have also approached the "facilitators" and requested them to use their influence on NAB for early issuance of validation letters so that payments are made to them.
